Unbelievable he's not seen it. Did he go to the premieres? This is delicious it s like he's having a treat .

That's a doctored video...the Ford footage is from him playing Uncharted 3.

A few things to note...

1. Harrison Ford is a cannabis aficionado.

2. I really believe that he has never seen the fims. A lot of actors don't feel comfortable watching their own movies (or too many movies at all). Watching too many movies can make you too self-aware, and that makes it harder to act.

3. His comments seem goofy. I think he's a bit stoned and just messing with us a little.

Edit: Well, ha, nevermind.

It's a fake, but a very well done fake. The reactions actually feel less hokey in this context than in the original video.

Disagree.

I haven't seen the original video, but his reactions in the doctored clip makes him look like someone that's just been released from a mental institution and who's never seen a movie before.

Let's pretend this isn't a hoax...Even if he never watched the first three over the years, he would have had to watch at least parts of them to study how he performed the character while preparing to do Kingdom.

I have a hard time believing that many actors have never seen their movies, especially huge movies like Indiana Jones. Now, if Harrison Ford had never seen some shitty movie he did when he was 23 years old, I could understand that, but I have to believe that actors watch their big movies at least once in their lives.

I could definitely see actors not watching their movies more than once a decade or something though.

I think some actors just lie when they're asked about watching their own movies.

That could be. I've probably watched Jaws 100 times in my life. I wonder how many times Richard Dreyfuss has watched it. ;)

I'm sure Harrison was too busy reviewing the glory of more mature work to have the time to catch up with Raiders.

Re: Actors not watching themselves on screen...I can see some following this principle while others do just the opposite, since entertainment celebs seem to be either the most insecure people or the vainest people living.

I don't disagree, but that's STILL more believable than the original video.

What about DVD commentaries? I mean they are watching it then right? I do recall a few times actors on commentaries saying this was the first time they watched it, or was the first time they watched it in years so I know this "avoiding watching yourself" happens. I heard it mostly from former child actors now that I think about it... I suspect the highest number would come from that group.

My GF saw him in person, and said he acted like a total ass. This young kid was a huge Indy fan, desperately wanted an autograph, but Ford wouldn't even look or speak to him.

People in the Pittsburgh area have met him on occassion, as Ford is a pilot and buys helicopters in this area and in West Virginia and the stories I have heard have been nothing but positive...a down to earth guy. Remember this is the same dude who rescued someone in his chopper and went door to door with UPS delivering Star Wars DVDs. Everyone has a bad day or two...catch him on it and you'll think he's a "jerk" for life...happens to the best of celebs. But Harrison is also reportedly VERY shy and private guy (believe it or not), like a lot of actors...what your GF took as being an ass, may have simply been Ford wanting to keep to himself (not sure the situation in which she met him). If it wasn't a public appearance, I can understand.
